Pradeep bags Test cricket's 10,000th lbw

Nuwan Pradeep became responsible for Test cricket's 10,000th lbw yesterday (28).

A notable statistical milestone was reached in Port Elizabeth after Pradeep rapped Hashim Amla on the pads.

The tally of leg-before-wicket scalps in cricket's premier format stood at 9,999 after day two of the first Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka at St George's Park.

And after Australia and Pakistan played a full day in Melbourne without any player falling lbw, it was Proteas batsman Amla who earned the dubious distinction of becoming victim number 10,000.

However, Pradeep then ousted Amla for 48 with the final ball of the afternoon session as the former South Africa skipper walked across his stumps to a full and straight delivery.
